Said Evan Rachel Wood of her custom Altuzarra tuxedo, "I wanted girls and women to know that [wearing a dress] is not a requirement."

Ball gowns were abundant at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards — the event which officially kicks off the 2017 awards season — however, it was the sharp tuxedos worn by Evan Rachel Wood, Kathryn Hahn, Octavia Spencer and Jill Soloway that stood out from the pack of embellished frocks and LBDs.

"I wanted young women and girls to know that [wearing a dress] isn't a requirement," Wood told E! of her decision to wear a tuxedo. The actress, who has attended six ceremonies over the course of her career, has worn dresses to all previous Golden Globes shows, but she has been exclusively wearing tuxedos while promoting HBO's hit series Westworld, for which she is nominated for best performance by an actress in a television series — drama.

Spencer also opted for a sleek suit in navy blue, which was created by her friend, designer Laura Basci. The actress, styled by Wendi and Nicole, paired her suit with a massive emerald ring. Hahn added a bit of sex appeal to her black Brandon Maxwell suit with an embellished black bandeau.

Transparent creator Jill Soloway rocked a pajama-inspired patterned silk suit by Gucci from the GucciGhost collection. Soloway paired the look with a red backpack, keeping up her streak of playful suiting, which she has made her red-carpet uniform.
